Telecoms firm Clear Mobitel could become a mobile broadband provider in Guernsey if the Channel island launches a 4G network.

According to the BBC, the Office of Utility Regulation is currently deliberating whether to permit the scheme, which would potentially increase competition in the state's broadband market.

Andrew Elston, director of regulatory affairs at Clear Mobitel, noted that all the operators currently providing broadband services in Guernsey are dependent on the incumbent fixed wire access.

"Our network in that respect is different - it is not dependent on that access environment," he stated.

"We are building a totally separated environment and would wish to compete vigorously, but fairly with those in the market today."

Last week, revealed that Cable & Wireless is upgrading broadband networks across Guernsey in order to offer high-speed web services.
